    CDC urges you to take the following actions to protect yourself and others from influenza (the flu)

    #1. Take time to get a flu vaccine.

    -CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.

    -Everyone 6 months of age and older should get vaccinated against the flu as soon as the season’s vaccine is available.

    -Vaccination of high risk persons is especially important!

     

    #2. Take everyday preventive actions to stop the spread of germs.

    -Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

    -Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

    -Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
